I never did anything about my procrastination. I am a deadline person as described above. So far it hasn't bitten me yet. Once that happens I may need to come up with a solution.

When I retired I stopped procrastinating. It was really quite simple, I just never set a time anything has to be done.

So, in other words, you haven't gotten around to doing anything about your procrastination...

Procrastination is one of my biggest problems.

The thought of knowing what you want to do but not making any progess hurts alot.

Neil Fiore's "The Now Habit " has helped my a lot to overcome procrastination when I was writing my thesis and during some other projects.
Even though, I cannot say that I have overcome proc. completely. I re-read, re-train and then slowly slip back after a while...
But funnily, I am perceived by others as active and energetic. Only that I know better....

I was perceived as a hard charger throughout my career. I always felt like I was one step ahead of the sheriff.

Well, I am done with all my coursework! Whew - and I had seven hours to spare! I could have dawdled a little more!

There is not another masters, nor a PhD in my future!

Just a few USN schools that are no longer than a couple months (max)

I find if it wasn't for the last minute - nothing would ever get done.

That's just a rumor-- they haven't signed out the press release yet.
